A visit to the Wiltshire Collection today, and a return to Bloomsday in 1954. The title on the image is “Unidentified man holding copy of “Ulysses”, others in background, Michael Scott’s house, Sandycove, Co. Dublin” and it shows a queue to a booth while in the foreground two men in deep conversation while one shows his copy of the book. We have been to Mr. Scotts house before but who are the men?
